I worked at US Airways full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Free flights when seats are available (free as many times a year, no limits) just pay taxes to fly international. Easy to trade shifts to get time off to go on vacations or day trips. Company matches 50% to your 401k. Company helps when you have medical issues, they really work with you to give you the time off. Overall Great company.

Cons

Start at a lower pay but put your time in and it will pay off. You HAVE to have patience for this job. You deal with the public being stressed out, so those people are mad and frustrated and will take it out on you. Fast paced and its hard to get your breaks in. You have to have high seniority to get holidays off.

Advice to Management

    I worked at US Airways full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a supportive work environment with strong moral between employees. There is a great commitment by the company and the employees to community involvement and volunteerism. Travel benefits are a nice perk if you can find an empty seat on a plane when and where you want to go.

    Cons

    There is no clear defined path for advancement or to the next opportunity. It is difficult to find openings and move between departments to gain experience and advance skills. The compensation is drastically below market value at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership training and opportunities need to be made available to more employees. Succession planning is not something that just be talked about but implemented with follow through providing real growth potential.

    Pros

    Referring to the "CONS", the years of Pittsburgh fat, waste and arrogance is long gone! If you can tolerate the mediocre wages and benefits, the present environment remains calm. But, with a merger and contract negotiations in-the-works and like so many other periods during my 30 years, the balance of this period of calm can and has been toppled in a single day.

    Cons

    Like MOST other airlines and the industry itself, the list of cons is LONG and particularly the post-Piedmont/US Air merger in August of 1989. Although Piedmont was a pseudo-decent place to work, it still fostered to mirror the tolerance of BOTH airlines to harbor an uncomfortable number of fellow co-workers...who get away with anything their personal agenda requires.

    TODAYS US Airways is a better place and this is solely due to the fact that the years of Pittsburgh fat and arrogance is long gone. Unfortunately, so is the money to pay their mechanics a respectable wage. Even today and on the onset of yet ANOTHER round of merger-mania with American Airlines AND a long expired collective bargaining agreement between the company and the not-so-illustrious I.A.W. & A.W.,the future will indeed resemble the past at the present. (Think MINDLESS and NEEDLESS work stoppages by the I.A.M & A.W. in October of 1993) A STRIKE..."just because!"
